N.J. power outage: JCP&L aims for complete restoration by Sunday night

N.J. power outage: JCP&L aims for complete restoration by Sunday night

Christie finally gets mad and tells utilities to wrap it up quickly

In a conference call with the heads of three New Jersey electric utilities Saturday, Gov. Chris Christie obtained a pledge by Jersey Central Power & Light to halt automated calls that inform homes and businesses that their power has been turned back on, when the residents are still sitting in the dark and cold.

“Of serious concern are reports that customers are being told their power is restored, but are not receiving power in their homes,” the governor said. “As the last remaining New Jerseyans without power are brought back online, JCP&L has committed to me to end the practice of automated restoration alert calls and to make these calls with live operators to ensure these types of problems are identified and met as quickly as possible."

A week after the so-called Halloween snowstorm, approximately 10,100 homes and businesses served by JCP&L, Public Service Electric and Gas and Orange and Rockland Electric remained without power late Saturday afternoon.
